Interesting. How do you dry the slabs without the usual radial split from an edge to the pith?

Most of those were slow dried over time, most all have some checking, I never worry about that, thats just part of rustic log furniture, that just adds character.
Like the canes, neat. And more twisty wood. Must be an Alabama thing.
